You Are Only Going Up From Here

Updated on July 20, 2017

Show Me

I hope you have your game face on

Ready to create

Thinking of a strategy

That will exhilarate

There is that feeling

That pumps our adrenaline

Gives us a taste

A moment of satisfaction

So we crave more

We do more

Busy as we may be

We uncover our secret identity

Our talents hidden just under the surface

Only when put to the test

They jump into action

The more we practice

The more we develop

As tiring as it may be

We push far beyond our capabilities

There comes a time

When being the same as everyone else

Is not good enough

We try to raise even higher

To a new level

No matter what other people may say and think

We have to move on

Playing it safe for many years

Now we will ruffle some feathers and walk against the rain

In the worst weather

The time is now

We have been patient

In the past we listened

To all the other people telling us what we should do

Taking a back seat

Along for the ride

Now we are not blowing off any steam

We are not mean

Just going in two opposite directions that is all

Wishing you the best in life

As we are in hot pursuit

Know different than than the police chasing the bad guys

In our minds

We are ready

To do what it takes

To finally bring a lasting smile cross our lips

One that we deserve so much

      Gypsy Rose Lee To do more by carrying out our ideas and putting them into action. It is so easy to get distracted and lost in just having a good time. If we keep repeating our goals and check to see I we have a clear view of what we really want. In time things will form. Like play dough you have to keep working it slowly and watch the littlest changes take shape. When all is over and done you will be so glad you did. Thank you so much for all your support and kind comments.

      Nicely penned. Nice flow here. I like to think that at the end we become like butterflies and just fly off realizing that even after life on Earth everything is wonderful and beautiful.

      Michael-Milec Living our life and finding ways how we can do the greatest good. Helping other people that are less fortunate. These are only some of the things I put into practice. I learn as I go. Our lives are only a short time spent here on earth. Each day you mention the wonders other people don't see or feel. Everyone has to find out for themselves in their own time. Thank you for all your kindness and love.
